What do these choices mean?
Text weight papers are suitable for document, brochure and flyer type printing. The heavier the weight, the crisper the feel and less show through will be apparent when double sided. Pieces with solid dark colors should use a heavier weight of paper.
Cover weights of 111# and 130# are standards for business cards and must be scored if they need to fold. The term "C1S" in cover weights means Coated 1 Side, which is a semigloss on one surface, and matte on the reverse. This is suitable for applications where one side might need to be written on with a ballpoint pen.
After choosing a weight, please select if you prefer matte or gloss. Not all weights have both options but we'll try and match your request as possible.
A waiver of proof is a serious consideration as you will not be able to confirm stock, color or layout choices before final print. For a full disclosure of what a proof waiver means, please read Island Blue's Policy. If you opt not to see a proof, your agreement of the Policy is assumed.
